NAME
       Smokeping::probes::base - Base Class for	implementing SmokePing Probes

OVERVIEW
       For the time being, please use the Smokeping::probes::FPing for
       inspiration when	implementing your own probes.

SYNOPSIS
	*** Probes ***

	+base

	offset = 50%
	pings =	20
	step = 300

	# [...]

	*** Targets ***

	probe =	base # if this should be the default probe

	# [...]

	+ mytarget
	# probe	= base # if the	default	probe is something else
	host = my.host

VARIABLES
       Supported probe-specific	variables:

       offset
	   If you run many probes concurrently you may want to prevent them
	   from	hitting	your network all at the	same time. Using the probe-
	   specific offset parameter you can change the	point in time when
	   each	probe will be run. Offset is specified in % of total interval,
	   or alternatively as 'random', and the offset	from the 'General'
	   section is used if nothing is specified here. Note that this	does
	   NOT influence the rrds itself, it is	just a matter of when data
	   acqusition is initiated.  (This variable is only applicable if the
	   variable 'concurrentprobes' is set in the 'General' section.)

	   Example value: 50%

       pings
	   How many pings should be sent to each target, if different from the
	   global value	specified in the Database section. Note	that the
	   number of pings in the RRD files is fixed when they are originally
	   generated, and if you change	this parameter afterwards, you'll have
	   to delete the old RRD files or somehow convert them.

	   Example value: 20

       step
	   Duration of the base	interval that this probe should	use, if
	   different from the one specified in the 'Database' section. Note
	   that	the step in the	RRD files is fixed when	they are originally
	   generated, and if you change	the step parameter afterwards, you'll
	   have	to delete the old RRD files or somehow convert them. (This
	   variable is only applicable if the variable 'concurrentprobes' is
	   set in the 'General'	section.)

	   Example value: 300
